ANNUAL REPORT

Marquette


MESSAGE

FROM THE

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

CATHY NARDI

Throughout the summer and fall, we can enjoy

the blooms of the flowers and crops we planted

in the spring. Before they could be planted, the

earth had to be turned over and the proper

nutrients added to ensure the seeds had the most

fertile soil to grow in.

The following African proverb provided the theme for our 2003

Annual Report: “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The

next best time is now.” Twenty years ago, local citizens began

preparing the soil and on June 27, 1988, the incorporation papers

were signed to establish the Marquette Community Foundation. I

find it appropriate to use the theme of preparing the soil for the

2006 annual report, because much work was done before the seed of

the community foundation was actually planted.

I also find it very appropriate that Mike and Emily Coyne provide

our donor story for this year, as Dr. Coyne was one of the original

“farmers” who helped prepare the soil and plant the seed for the

Marquette Community Foundation. They share their desire to give

back to the community that provided them a great place to work,

play, and raise a family. They also want to provide an

example for others by leaving a bequest in their will to

the community foundation.

“THE BEST TIME

TO PLANT A TREE

IS 20 YEARS AGO.

The Marquette Community Foundation now provides fertile

soil in which you can plant a seed for the charity or cause you

believe in. Your contribution, large or small, will grow and provide

income for your favorite cause or to meet the emerging needs of the

community. You can also leave your lasting legacy by becoming a

member of the Legacy Society by simply naming the Marquette

Community Foundation in your will.

We are here For good. For ever.

THE NEXT

BEST TIME

IS NOW.”

ESTABLISHING A TRADITION

OF GIVING BACK:

Mike & Emily Coyne

Anyone who knows Mike & Emily Coyne

knows they share a passion for the Marquette

community. A fourth generation “Yooper”,

Mike was more than enthused when Emily

found an advertisement searching for doctors

in the small community of Marquette while

they were in Arizona. They were both excited

about the prospect of returning to Mike’s roots.

Marquette offered the quality of life that

appealed to them; a small town with close

neighbors and family ties.

“That was 40 years ago,” exclaimed Mike. “We

couldn’t have asked for a better place to live, work, and

raise a family. We recognized how privileged we were.

We had taken advantage of all the area had to offer and

felt the desire and responsibility to give back to the

community.”


“IT’S EASIER TO GIVE WHEN YOU’RE DEAD.

IT DOESN’T HURT SO MUCH.”

Dr. Coyne, who is one of the founders of the Marquette

Community Foundation, explained, “Twenty years ago, there wasn’t

an appropriate vehicle through which to establish the tradition of

giving back until the Marquette Community Foundation was

incorporated on June 27, 1988. In fact, the first $1,500

establishing the foundation’s assets came from memorial gifts when

my mother passed away in 1988.”

Emily and Mike were attracted to the concept of the community

foundation because of its self-supporting nature. The community

contributes and then decides how to use the money generated by

their investment. Another reason they are still supporters is the

many and various ways one can contribute to a community

foundation. They chose to leave a bequest to the Foundation

through a charitable remainder trust. “The trust supplies an annual

income during our retirement,” explained Emily. “The remainder

will transfer to our three favorite organizations; the Marquette

Community Foundation, Girl Scouts of Peninsula Water and Bay

Cliff Health Camp.”

Both Emily and Mike encourage others to consider the Foundation

as a way to forever support the causes they care about through a

bequest and the importance of informing the foundation about your

plan. Mike stated, “Our bequest serves as a strong reminder to our

family that they are part of the community forever and it sets an

example for others. Besides,” he joked, “It’s easier to give when

you’re dead. It doesn’t hurt so much.”


“I TRUST IN NATURE

FOR THE STABLE LAWS

OF BEAUTY AND UTILITY.

SPRING SHALL PLANT

AND AUTUMN GARNER

TO THE END OF TIME.”

THE LEGACY

SOCIETY

Your Enduring Legacy:

For good. Forever.

There are many ways to leave a lasting legacy in the Marquette

County community. One of the most effective means of ensuring

that the charitable organizations and causes you’ve loved during your

lifetime will continue to be supported long after you’re gone is to

name the Marquette Community Foundation or one of its affiliates,

the Greater Ishpeming Area Community Fund, the Negaunee Area

Community Fund, or the Gwinn Area Community Fund, in your

will. The tax benefits are significant and gifts to the Community

Foundation are completely exempt from estate taxes. Another

effective method is to purchase a life insurance policy in the name of

the Marquette Community Foundation or one of its affiliates. Your

premium payment is tax deductible and when you pass, the

Community Foundation receives the death benefit.

Making a bequest to the Marquette Community Foundation is an

easy way to transfer cash, appreciated stocks or bonds, real or

personal property, or other assets. With assistance from your estate

or financial advisor, we can recommend the most tax efficient types

of assets to give through your will.

COMMUNITY FUNDS

Greater Ishpeming Area, Gwinn Area

& Negaunee Area Served by Special Funds

The Marquette Community Foundation

and its affiliates, the Greater Ishpeming Area

Community Fund and Negaunee Area Community

Fund pitched in to support three

Marquette County wide efforts.

All three funds used part of their available

grant money to provide financial support for

the Iron Ore Heritage Trail sponsored by the

Lake Superior Community Partnership, start

up cost for a Marquette County Boy’s Choir

and the Superior Pipes & Drums.

“The Iron Ore Heritage Trail is in its Feasibility

Stage”, explained Carol Fulsher, Director

of Recreation for the LSCP. “With this

grant money, we will hire a local artist to prepare

sketches depicting what the trail will look

like. Visuals are important as we seek further

funding from the local, state, federal and private

levels.”

She further explained, “The Heritage Trail

is part of the Partnership’s plan to use our natural,

historical, and cultural resources as an economic

development tool. A similar trail in

Midland, MI attracted over 178,000 people

in a six month time period, 20% of whom

were from out of the area and came specifically

because of the trail.”

Fulsher expressed her gratitude to the community

funds for their support. “The Partnership

is thankful for the combined support

of the three organizations as the trail will positively

affect all three areas they represent.”

The three community funds also thought

it important to provide funding to help establish

a Marquette County Boy’s Choir. Bob

Marietti, Sheila Grazulis and Tony Beacco recently

got together to begin plans for a youth

male choir.

“Young males in this county have a plethora

of athletic activities to participate in. They

may not have thought of music as an option,”

commented Marietti. “We want to attract

young men at an early stage to get them deeply

involved in music. We feel it will add another

dimension to their lives they might not otherwise

have experienced. Everyone gets older

and participation in sports becomes more difficult

on our bodies but, we can sing until we

die. We are grateful for the combined support

of our efforts to bring this to fruition.”

The Fall of 2005 brought about the formation

of a new cultural music group to entertain

the residents of Marquette County. Led

by bagpipe instructor Gregg McGregor, drum

instructors Pierre Ogea, Wayne Oien, and Ken

Hietikko, and Highland dance instructor Deb

Choszczyk. Superior Pipes & Drums will provide

instruction, musical performances and

lectures to groups and public gatherings about

Scottish Highland Arts.

Pierre Ogea, president of the group, expressed

his thanks for the grants received from

Ishpeming, Negaunee and Marquette. “The

funds will provide for kilts and drum equipment

so we can march in parades and perform

at ceremonies such as funerals for fire

fighters who die in the line of duty.”

2006 GRANTS

When the Marquette Community Foundation provides

grant monies to a deserving recipient, a wonderful thing

happens. Those monies are returned to our community

to help make it a better place than it was before a new

social program was put into place, a special population

was assisted, or a scholarship was given.

Through its granting programs, the Community Foundation,

in essence, provides the sunshine with which the

branches of the community-at-large can grow. The pages

that follow list those organizations that were grant recipients

during 2006.

We are honored to serve as responsible stewards of the gifts entrusted to us by our donors. To ensure that our assets are prudently managed

while still providing enough income to meet our area’s needs well into the future, our finance committee guides all aspects of our

foundation’s financial activities - from investment policies, banking practices, and accounting methods.
